There is no statute of limitations on murder. Look Closely.
That's all the anonymous letter said, but attorney
Hailey Sutter understands the meaning behind the well-chosen words. Someone wants her to investigate what happened to her mother, who died when Hailey was only seven.
The death was ruled accidental, but Hailey begins having flashbacks that tell a different story: a pounding at the door...her mother struggling to stand...a man with a gold ring that flashed in the night as he held her mother's lifeless body.
Obsessed with uncovering the truth, Hailey can't trust anyone, especially her father, whose secrecy both unnerves and protects her. Desperate to remember that fatal night, she seeks out the brother and sister who left home after their mother's death. But they have disappeared. It's soon clear to Hailey that the answer is right in front of her--all she has to do is find the courage to look closely....

'Look Closely' was such an amazing novel! Full of suspense, really keeps you on the edge of your seat! Hailey, McKnight, and all the other characters seem so amazingly real! This is truly a book to remember!
The unsigned letter contained a cryptic message of ¿There is no statute of limitations on murder. LOOK CLOSELY¿. Manhattan attorney Hailey Sutter has no idea who sent it, but knows what the writer is alluding to, the accidental death of her mother Leah when she was only seven years old............................ . Over the next two decades whenever Hailey asked her father what happened, he insisted she was ill and tells her no more including what happened to her two siblings who vanished without a trace just after Leah died. However, this time with the letter as a catalyst, she begins asking questions and learns that her mom died from a head injury. Not long after that Hailey begins remembering flashes of what happened on that fatal night and starts to wonder if her father killed her mother........................... LOOK CLOSELY is a thrilling who-done-it that the audience wants to know the truth once Hailey gets the letter and decides she needs to know especially if her dad killed her mom and what happened to her siblings. The story line is fast-paced as the heroine begins exploring her mind for clues and seeking knowledge from others who might have tidbits. Though Hailey seems too egocentric, the audience will allow her that because of what occurred when she was a child but still not like her. Laura Caldwell provides a solid thriller that hoods readers with the need to know...................... Harriet Klausner
